How to Weight a V-Drive Ski/
Wakeboard Boat for Wakesurfing
Ultimate Mid Engine Direct Drive Wakesurf Set-up
left-img msg2  
If you weight your V-Drive boat like this diagram shows, people will not have to learn to wakesurf behind it, they will immediately be able to do it the first time. People that already know how to wakesurf will be able to do bigger tricks without losing the wake.

NOTE: When weighting your boat like this, make sure to give the boat a little throttle to bring the bow of the boat up enough when passing through wakes so they don't wash over the front of the boat.
This diagram shows the way to weight a V-Drive ski/wakeboard boat for wakesurfing. Fill all factory ballast if there is any in the boat in addition to the sacs shown on the diagram to first get the whole boat down deep in the water. Put the Ultimate Wake Surf Sac (W718) on top of the rear seat & side seat and the V-Drive Wake Surf Sac (W713) on top of the front seat in the open bow that you are wakesurfing on, to get the rear corner and side of the boat you are surfing on even deeper in the water. This will displace the most water & create the biggest possible wake. The diagram shows it on the passenger side for wakesurfing on the passenger side. Put the Ultimate wakesurf Sac (W718) and the V-Drive Wakesurf Sac (W713) in the same place on the drive side for wakesurfing on the driver side. The Ultimate Wakesurf Sac (W718) is symmetrical so the fittings are on top and on the bottom so you can put it on the rear seat and side seat you are wakesurfing on & have the fittings on top to fill & empty from. Some wakesurfers like the shape of the wake better when you empty all the weight from side of the boat opposite from wakesurfing side, but the wake will not be as large.
NOTE: It is important to hold the Ultimate Wakesurf Sac (W718) when you are filling and emptying it but when it is full it is firm so it cannot roll off the seats because it is shaped like a 'L'.
NOTE: One of the great things about fat sacs is that it doesn't matter if they are exactly the same size and shape as the compartment or space they are going in because they will conform. If you want maximum weight out of a space or compartment you need to go with sacs at least as big, if not bigger then the space or compartment so when you fill them & they confirm they will fill up the whole area and give you maximum weight out of it.
